OUR OPEN COLUMN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRIGHTON LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 24 December 1887

OUR OPEN COLUMN. TO TIHEEDITOR OF THE BRIGHTON LEADER. SIn,--Belonging to that not inconsider able section of the community who consider that horseracing is not exactly the un mixed blessing as represented in some quarters, whetherf followed as a business or amusement, I was gratified to notice in your last issune a letter calling attention to the injury and annoyance to the residents in the vicinity of -Hurlingham by the numnerous meetings held there, and the alarming increase threatened next year The writer showed that there are other interests entitled to be considered in op position to these superfluous racecourses and the miscellaneous crowd who attend, and for whose especial benefit and amuse ment they are alone established and main tained. If Hlurlingham had been an estab lished and recognised .course, and the present residents had built or bought property in its tneighborhood, they woul have themselves to blame for any annoy ance that may have arisen, but from the fact 'that...

In the year 1Se6 I was making my tempor ary abode in one of the Englishl colonies at the Antipodes ; and I had been at. (at the time of this story) living for several months in a small town situated about a Ihaidred miles from the seat of the war which was then wanging between Enland' and rebel lios natives. One morning, on coming down to brcak fast, I found on the table a letter from my friend, Tom Gracs, whichiread as follows : "IDEAi J.--lajor Parnifal has turned up here again, on his way to pay off the troops at 5-.

JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, DEC. 24, s1887 IIHRISTMAS. Ix a few hours Christmas will have come and gone, but Christ still re mains as the grandest figure and mightiest power on the world's plat form. Swiftly the centuries have rolled away . since in the " starry silence" the song of songs broke'the stillness of the night with its'. ipro-. phetic and hopeful notes of "Glory to God in the Highest, and on earti peace and good will toward nie?." He came as the source --herald of peace, - to '-Lind up the broken hearted and give liberty to the cap tive.' At Jlis bidding the blue waves of Gallilee, lashed into foam by one of those sudden storms which to this day sweep across it, became calm, and at His wondrous voice, the infinitely worst storms that-seethe and rage in' the human soul, have been turned into a "peace that passeth all un derstanding," -He is the Prince of peace and by a singular and apt coin cidence the warlike forces of the world were holding truce when he came.

EXTRAORDINARY CASE. Rescue of an Alleged White Slave. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 24 December 1887

EXTRAORDINARY CASE. Rescue of an Alleged White Slave. The most intense excitement pre- i vailed through" the ' district to-day when it was alleged that a system of slavery had existed in the neighbor hood of Walmer, about midway between this town nidl Maldoin, for the last twenty years. The facts of the case are so sensational a nature that a three-volume romance might be writteh on them. For obvious reasons the names of some of the principals are suppressed for the present. The alleged facts are as follows :-Daring the construction of the main railway line from Melbourne to Sandhurst, there was employed as a laborer a Dane named Andreas Christian ledstrup, and with ilim a compatriot named Hansen. About twenty-one years ago, Bedlstrnp sud denly disappeared. and although en ,quiricA were made, his whereabouts weae not known till some five years ago, when Hansen recognised him as being one of theemnployees of.a neigh bouring farmer at Walmner. At the time of the discovery, Bedstrup ap...

How to Learn to Swim. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 24 December 1887

How to Learn to Swimn. The first thing tb be done is to learn to duck without minding it. Hold your breath and put 'your head under water several times whenever you bathe. You may probably strangle a bit at first, but the ducking will become less and less disagreeable, until the disinclination to-go under- water nearly or qitite'disappcars. Of course the bather need not make a martyr of himself by spending his whole time in the practice of ducking. He may splash about as much as he likes. Some acquire the-necessary indifference to being under water almost at once. When it isanc quired, let the bather select a place where the water is just deep enough for him to sit ulion the bottom with head and shoulders out-of-water.-Then let him take a fall breath, distending the lungs, and placing his arms by his sides, lie down on his back on the bottom. If unsuccessful, partially expel the air from the lungs and try again. After having found out by actual experiment how e.isy it is to lie down...
